Trinity College Dublin is encouraging students living in college accommodation to return home and offering them a partial refund.

The university has about 1,800 students living on its city centre campus or at its Trinity Hall residence, in Dartry, Dublin.

The move to empty rooms comes amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus, which has hit the Trinity community directly, with two cases reported in the past week.
